|About - About Punjab Online website||Theme:|
|This website seeks to promote the rich cultural heritage of the Punjabi people. Punjab is a region in Northern India and the East part of Pakistan. Its name is derived from the fact that five rivers flow through it (Punj = five, Aab = rivers). The region has a proud history including an old civilization that endured numerous upheavals. Although the courageous people of the Punjab encountered tremendous challenges, they always kept their high spirits and maintained their traditions. Indeed, many major religious philosophies were born and nourished in the region. Punjab Online provides an interactive forum and informational resource on Punjabi culture.|
